5 out of 5 eggsStill my favorite mouse

Pros: I purchased this mouse in 2009 (i believe), and still to this day, 5 years later, it is running great. Tracking and precision is excellent. I use it all the time for FPS games, and in editing photos in Photoshop. I can tell a difference in tracking precision immediately when switching to any cheap starter mouse most computers come with.

The 1000Hz polling rate it much better than the standard 125Hz, and helps make it very responsive.

I really like having the option to customize the weight of the mouse.

2000dpi is more than enough for just about anyone. With the windows sensitivity set around half, I almost always use the mouse at it's default "middle" setting of 800dpi. Smooth, precise, and I wouldn't really want it to move any faster.

Cons: While the mouse tracks very well on my black wooden desk, it sometimes struggles a tiny bit on other surfaces (rough wooden table, fuzzy table cloth), but that is to be expected. It is still very good, but the difference is noticeable if you are playing a game that requires very precise movements. Also, I expect every other mouse on the market would also suffer from slight performance drops on less than ideal surfaces.

Besides that very minor annoyance, it is an all around great mouse.

Other Thoughts: A few reviewers have mentioned the braided cord fraying or getting damaged... After 5 years of near daily use (often multiple hours a day), the cord still is in great condition with no signs of damage in the near future.

I am in the process of choosing a new mouse for my second computer, and I am worried that whatever I get will have a very tough job comparing to my old reliable G5. I love this mouse, and it has served me well through many a long COD gaming session.

Newer mice often come with higher dpi settings, but this is mostly a marketing ply, with little real world improvement. The only reason I can think for getting something with a higher dpi, is if you intend to set the sensitivity in windows to a very low setting and run the mouse with a higher dpi. Even then, I doubt I would see any real performance gain.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, but Out of Date

Pros: Lightweight, super smooth, and amazing precision. I have had this mouse for almost six years and have never had a single problem with it. I will be buying a new one soon for the simple fact that exterior design is suffering from normal wear and tear, but the actual internal functionality hasn't let me down a single time. I would recommend this mouse to anybody and everybody, I don't have a single negative thing to say about this product besides the fact that it's obviously a little outdated.

Cons: This mouse was released a loooooong time ago, so obviously it's a little outdated. It's like comparing a razer cell phone with an iphone today. There are other mouses that have been released lately that are much more updated for the current day and time. Regardless, if you are on a budget and you can find this mouse for cheap from a retailer who still sells it, I would get it in a heartbeat.

Other Thoughts: Overall, great mouse. Would suggest to anyone, but it's just a really old school mouse. If you are looking for a mouse that's not too complicated, reliable, and durable, this would be my number one choice to you.

5 out of 5 eggsRIP, friend.

Pros: This mouse is excellent. I've just had to order an upgrade and I pray that it's as good as this mouse has been to me. I've had it almost 5 years. Very reliable.

Cons: Only thing is that the dpi buttons started sticking, but it's old so it might just be dirty now.

Other Thoughts: LOVE this mouse. I wish I could get it again, but I ordered a G500s; maybe it'll be similar..

5 out of 5 eggs5 years and 5 months

Pros: All

Cons: 0

Other Thoughts: As of writing this review, I've had this mouse for 5 years and 5 months. It still works, it's still a great mouse. But I believe it will soon be laid to rest. It has a short in it which makes it work pathetically and aggravatingly. I would repurchase this mouse if it were available. I love you, mouse!!

5 out of 5 eggs4.75 years, still strong

Pros: I know you can't get this on Newegg anymore, but it's great.

* Love the pattern, although it's getting worn
* Fits my hand well
* Has been a real champ for the past 4.75 years
* Great DPI. No skipping in first-person shooters
* Mouse buttons still work like new (except side-tilt scrolling)

Cons: * The cord is a little stiff... it still has bends in it from several years ago
* Side tilt of scrollwheel is getting a little loose
* I would have designed it with more teflon surface area where the thumb and index finger rest because that's worn out while the pad closer to the wrist still has plenty left

Other Thoughts: Bought this March 2009 and have been using it actively since. Turn off "enhanced pointer precision"/acceleration in Windows to get super-precise pointing. It has adjustable weights which I don't care about; sometimes I'll put them in, sometimes I'll take them out.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Mouse

Pros: Excellent for grip style. Bought in 2007 and was still using it. However one of the skates get damaged after 6 years.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: It is unfortunate Logitech discontinued this. It is my understanding that G500 are not up par with this. But I have no first hand experience myself on this.

5 out of 5 eggs5 years and counting..

Pros: No need to go into this again.

Cons: I paid $75.00 for this mouse back in 2008, if you want one now its going to cost over $150.00. Not sure why Logitech decided to discontinue this model, the newer models are nowhere near as good.

Other Thoughts: Have had this mouse for over 5 years and it still works flawless. They sure don't make them like they used to!

4 out of 5 eggsThis was a nice mouse...

Pros: Really liked this mouse a lot. Sad when it died. Very comfortable, nice texture. Highly adjustable weight, weights inserted in back of mouse which made it feel more balanced to me.

Cons: Drivers/software that came with it were useless.

Other Thoughts: Kinda pricey at the time, but would buy again if still available.
